Mention psychic power to most people and you get the message they don’t want to talk about it. Talk about psychic ability and you are likely to be dismissed with a laugh. Google “psychic powers,” “psychic ability,” or “psychic awareness” and you will see hundreds of thousands of results featuring everything from psychic readers to lessons on developing your psychic abilities.
There are almost 50,000 Google global searches per month for the term, “psychic ability.” Even though this is a low number, searches for learning about psychic ability are even lower. Global searches per month for the terms “how to develop psychic ability,” and “how to improve psychic ability” range from fewer than 1,000 to a little more than 1,000 searches a month. The results of these searches range in the hundreds of thousands, meaning that there are hundreds of thousands of resources out there for developing or improving psychic awareness, but few people are taking advantage of these resources. I interpret this as a reflection of the fear most of us still associate with anything psychic.
Let me tell you something – whether you know it or not and whether you like it or not, you are psychic. Everybody is psychic. Being psychic is no big deal. I think the big deal is how we look at psychic ability. Denying your psychic ability is like denying you have a brain.
The Fear Factor
The combination of power mongers since ancient times passing on their rules of entitlement and our dependence on physical science (talk about co-dependence) to tell us what’s right and what’s wrong, has compromised our ability to trust ourselves.
I’m not against physical science. There’s no question that humanity has gained immensely from physical science. And we stand to gain even more as quantum physics reveals more and more about the invisible realities of life.
I’m not worried about power mongers. They are losing their grip on humanity. Just look at world events of the past few years. As we gain the courage to develop our full potential, we will learn to listen to our psychic promptings and direct our lives with confidence.
What Do Psychic Powers Look Like?
Psychic powers have a boundless range of qualities. They can look anything like the little something that tells you where to find a parking place to the dream about a future event that comes true.
The general assumption is that unless you are a professional psychic prophesying dramatic events, you are not psychic. The truth is, the only difference between professional psychics and you is that they receive clear impressions and trust them. It’s their expertise. It’s their calling.
Being a psychic advisor or an intuitive counselor is like any other profession; like being a master carpenter, for instance. Certain people are called to the art and craft of fine carpentry. They love doing custom cabinetry, building furniture; it fulfills them and they are good at it. The rest of us aren’t interested in being a master carpenter, but that doesn’t mean we can’t hang a picture or build a deck on the back of our house.
Psychic ability is more than an art and a skill, however. It’s an inborn quality like your brain waves with the potential to help you live a more fulfilling life. You have the choice to develop your psychic ability. You have the choice to learn which hunches to follow and which not to follow. You have the choice to pay attention to your innate knowledge or to ignore it.
How Do Psychic Powers Serve You?
Your psychic awareness is immensely practical and always there. Remember the last time you were talking to someone who tried to convince you he was just fine when you had the sense that he was upset about something, or the time someone was handing you a line of bull when you knew instinctively she was lying? We were born psychic to help us navigate the tricky tides of life.
I wrote four articles about psychic awareness that will give you more information about your powerful life-enhancing abilities; your gifts of clairsentience, clairvoyance, prophecy, and clairaudience. You can learn a lot about yourself from them. If you’ve already read these pieces, you may want to read them again, maybe with a different point of view this time.
I hope this article helped you see psychic powers as a natural part of who you are. Your thoughts?
The other day a reader asked a question on my post Psychic Ability – The Gift of Feeling that many others have on their minds. She is so sensitive to other people’s feelings that sometimes she can’t function in her daily life, and she wanted to know how to overcome her debilitating situation.
I could empathize with her because I used to have the same issue. I shared a couple of powerful energy clearing techniques with her, which will solve the immediate problem, but there’s so much more to this question and not enough room to discuss it in a blog comment that I decided to share with you in a blog post how I learned to live in my own energy without sacrificing my sensitivity.
This post is a long one because I have included step-by-step processes that will help you relax, calm down, and clear your mind. So hang in there with me.
The Human Energy Field
This issue really starts with the cosmic soup of energy we live in. Thoughts are things, and we are constantly bombarded with thoughts and impressions from outside ourselves 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – that’s 24/7, no exaggeration. We are two-way radios, constantly sending and receiving signals. We are never unplugged.
Every living thing has an electromagnetic field which penetrates and surrounds it. In humans, it’s called the human energy field. The human energy field is the life force that holds the cells of our bodies together. Without it, we would be corpses. Here is a good description of the human energy field, also called the aura, from reiki-for-holistic-health.com.
The aura is the electromagnetic field that surrounds the human body (Human Energy Field-HEF) and every organism and object in the Universe.
The Human Energy Field [is] a collection of electro – magnetic energies of varying densities that permeate through and emit or exit from the physical body of a living person. These particles of energy are suspended around the healthy human body in an oval shaped field. This “auric egg” emits out from the body approximately 2-3 feet (1 metre on average) on all sides. It extends above the head and below the feet into the ground.
The aura, also called the biofield, is actually our soul energy and connects us to everything in the universe. It’s the medium through which we sense our environment. Everyone senses everything in their environment through their aura whether they are aware of it or not; the only difference between people is the degree of sensitivity.
People who are highly empathic are particularly sensitive to their environment. These are the ones who find it challenging to be in a crowd or to be in a negative environment because they pick up energy indiscriminantly. The good news is that we have the ability to manage our biofield energy. In fact, it’s very important to manage our biofield energy so that we can function free of outside influences and enjoy life more.
Personal Energy Management
There are familiar ways we all regulate our biofield energy, such as doing things that lift our spirits like watching funny movies, going out with friends, playing sports, etc. These are indirect methods of biofield energy management, and they are more directed at our moods.
Everybody knows that keeping our thoughts more positive than negative is a powerful way to regulate our energy. Prayer is another powerful way.
For some, managing thoughts is easier said than done. And sometimes even the strongest minds need something more. That’s where direct methods of energy management come in.
Direct methods obviously work directly with your energy field, either physically or mentally, and do more than change your mood. They affect both your biofield and your body. Whether we use direct or indirect methods, I call it Personal Energy Management, or P.E.M.
There are other good methods of direct energy management, but I have found the ones I’m going to share with you to be quicker and easier than most, once you learn them. You can actually do these techniques on the run, if necessary. It’s like instant P.E.M.
Protecting Your Space
The first thing you need to do is establish a psychic boundary between you and the rest of the world. I don’t mean you have to shut down your feelings, but create a space within and around yourself that will allow you to sense the feelings and thoughts of others without getting caught up in them. I’m going to share four ways I do this. I call them all Spiritual Cleansing. The first one is a physical process.
Spiritual Cleansing I
Standing up, rub your hands together until they feel warm or until they tingle or feel like magnets when you hold the palms about an inch apart. This means your biofield is charged up and ready to work with.
Bring your hands to your forehead and pass them down over your temples and jaw line.
Then shake them to keep your biofield energy going.
Now, starting at your forehead again, pass your hands over the top of your head and around the back of your neck and bring them to the front again.
Shake your hands again, and repeat the process until you feel balanced, starting with your forehead and jaw line once more. You can touch or not touch your skin. The process works either day.
As you are doing the physical process, you can repeat this mantra (or not): “In the name of (your word for the Creator) within me, I cleanse my body, I cleanse my soul.”
Do this entire process as many times as you need to until you sense that your energy is strong and clear.
You will know your energy is balanced and clear when you feel relaxed, when your skin feels tingly, or when you get chills or goose bumps.
You can do this process on the run (in a meeting, on the bus, at your desk, etc.) by rubbing the back of your neck or rubbing your forehead and mentally saying the mantra at the same time. Everyone does this naturally because subconsciously we know the back of the neck and the forehead are the points where our biofield energy enters the body and leaves the body. Running your hand through your hair is another way you automatically cleanse your biofield energy.
Spiritual Cleansing II and Variation
Visualize yourself doing Spiritual Cleansing I and repeating the mantra.
After you become familiar with the technique, just repeating the mantra either aloud or mentally will have the same effect as doing the physical process.
Spiritual Cleansing III
Imagine a tiny ball of white light in your solar plexus.
Allow the light to expand to fill your body.
Now imagine the light surrounding your body in a big, glowing ball of white light.
As you imagine the light filling and surrounding you, you can say, “I see the white light of the Loving Presence that fills me and surrounds me.”
You can use any color you are led to use.
Spiritual Cleansing IV
Say the following three times, aloud or mentally:
“I invoke the light of the Christ within (or your word for the Creator), I’m a clear and perfect channel, light is my guide.”
Each of these processes creates an invisible shield around you which allows you to sense your environment without becoming influenced by it. Each of them will produce physical effects, such as tingling, chills, or goose bumps.
If you have a dowsing rod(s), you can measure a friend’s biofield while s/he is doing these processes and have him/her measure yours. Have your friend focus on a negative thought, then measure his field by standing about 10 feet away and walking toward him with the rod(s). You will not get a measurement until you are about 12 inches or so from your friend. As your friend does the cleansing processes, you will see his aura projecting up to 10 feet from his body when you use the dowsing rod(s). It’s fun to see how powerful these processes are and to realize how much power we have to change our energy.
Cleansing is a spiritual discipline, and you will get out of it what you put into it. I recommend cleansing before you go to bed and when you get up, whenever you feel stressed or tired during the day, angry or upset, before a meeting, before and after work, and between tasks during the day. You’ll find countless ways you can use it in your everyday life. You can teach your children how to do it, too. Little kids love to do it.
You may feel the need to cleanse multiple times a day at first, but when you become skilled with these techniques, your energy will stay at higher levels longer and you won’t have to cleanse as often. Always look for the physical responses of chills, tingling, or goose bumps that confirm your energy is clear. It’s important for everyone to take charge of their energy. You don’t have to live your life at the mercy of your environment.
I hope you will try these techniques, and I’d love to receive your comments. Also, please share with us other ways you manage your personal energy. Knowledge is power!
As you know, I talk a lot about human potential. For years I taught people how to develop their in-born psychic abilities and use them in practical ways in everyday life. The main focus of my book and this blog is to help demystify the psychic and spiritual parts of our nature so we can learn to use these gifts we were born with to help ourselves and others live their best lives.
Today I want to share with you an article written by Dr. Jill Ammon-Wexler about the power of your mind. Dr. Jill and I share the belief that psychic ability is a normal part of human nature and can be developed to help us improve our quality of life.
Here is a quote from Albert Einstein that you will find if you click on the related article link, “Intuition – An Intuitive’s View” where I found it. I agree with him.
“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.”
Clairaudience means clear hearing, and it refers to your inner voice. Clairaudience can manifest as a song or repetitive words or phrases in your head, or a persistent thought in the back of your mind. You might even hear an inner voice calling your name.
As soon as you understand the message behind these inner words, you no longer hear them. Clairaudients recognize these phenomena as their inner guidance communicating with them.
The Psychic Aspect of Clairaudience
Clairaudients pick up impressions from your voice and words. They listen for tone of voice as much or more than the words they hear. They are very discerning and are seldom fooled by insincerity. They call this awareness common sense. They also receive impressions in lightening-fast complete thoughts or ideas.
A good way to develop your gift of clairaudience is to get together with a friend and practice projecting words to each other. Before you start, make sure both of you are relaxed and your minds are clear.
Sit in a chair with your back straight and both feet on the floor. Have your friend sit behind you. Have your friend project a word by mentally saying it (not picturing it) and looking at the back of your head. With eyes closed and your mind cleared, experience whatever impressions come to you. Share your impressions as you receive them.
Even though your intention is to hear an inner voice, any impression is valid. For example, if you get a picture of a word or a symbol or if you get a feeling, share it. With practice, you will pick up the word.
One variation is to have your friend in one room and you in another. You can work in a group and take turns with different partners. Have the receiver leave the room and have the group project an agreed-upon word to the receiver. However you do it, stay relaxed and enjoy the process.
As you gain experience, you can work with phrases or complete thoughts.
There is another aspect of this process; projecting and receiving. Some people are better receivers and some are better at projecting. Clairaudients are usually better at projecting than receiving.
The Clairaudient Personality
Clairaudients (or Cognitives) are born leaders and are the CEOs or department heads in business, the team leaders in athletics, and outstandingly successful entrepreneurs. Whether they are outgoing or reserved their personalities are dynamic and they seem to dominate when they enter a room.
Clairaudients are organized, they think big, and they don’t like details, which they delegate to others while they manage the big picture. Clairaudients break an objective down into its simplest parts and proceed methodically to carry out a successful conclusion.
They talk about understanding. For example, “I understand,” or “Understand?,” or “Get it?” When explaining something, they give you the big idea. You usually have to ask for details. They may tell you themselves or tell you to get them from someone else.
They take their time to think about something, then act quickly. They crave activity and need to be moving forward all the time. They do not suffer fools gladly and can be impatient with people whom they perceive to be too slow to keep up.
Once they make their minds up, they don’t change. They’re too busy forging ahead. Although they feel deeply, they are not usually emotional and tend to be somewhat undemonstrative.
Have your thoughts organized when communicating with a Clairaudient type, and don’t talk about details. You can tell you’ve lost them when their eyes glaze over or they start doing something else, like making phone calls. They can’t think in a cluttered space or when you are embellishing a thought.
Out of balance they can be demanding or demeaning, controlling others by intimidation. When in balance, they carry others along with an optimistic attitude and positive team spirit.
Practical application of your gift of clairaudience:
• discern a person’s motives by their tone of voice
• ask for and receive words as guidance in meditation
• be mentally and physically organized
• be an accomplished leader
